Martinsville Man Wins Lottery

Martinsville, VA - A trip to buy fishing supplies was a very lucky one for a Martinsville man.

Dennis Harmon stopped by the lottery machine on his way out of Kmart and won a Maximum Millions ticket jackpot of $1 million.

Harmon says he bought two tickets that lost. Then, he says he went back inside to buy another ticket, but the machine wouldn't take his $5 bill. He put a $20 bill in and won that million dollar ticket.

Harmon says winning is great, but you should play the lottery responsibly.

"I guess if you like to play the lottery, but you should pay your bills and keep it up," said Harmon. "You shouldn't just play lottery to spend every penny you have."

Harmon says he won't change his lifestyle, but he will pay off his house and buy his wife a car.
